In 2007, Ash Ringin joined Dan Scott in swapping Ballarat for Anniesland in the Aussie winter. A probing left arm quick who specialised in late movement, Ash was a handfull for any opposition he turned out against.
Written by Austin, updated March '24.
Ash took 17 wickets at an average of under 21 in his season with Accies in the SNCL, including three 3-fors. The most important of these was his 3-18 against Edinburgh in Accies' only win of the season. Ash also highlighted the difference between Scottish and Australian cricket by finishing high in the batting averages (20.75) with a determined 55* against the pace and swing of Waqas Ahmed his most impressive work. He usually bats at number 11 back home.
The high-point of the summer for Ash was clinching victory in the Berwick sixes to end a long and grueling season with some silverware to take back Down-Under.
Among the life experiences Ash amassed in Glasgow were a stint (of about a week) working at Jellyhill and a longer spell working for Nige as a labourer. He also participated entusiastically in stumpy... though if you're still reading this, Mrs. Ringin - don't worry! We looked after him really!
Ash has returned to Victoria to attend university and continue to develop as a cricketer. We at Accies wish him every success.
